I’ve been averaging 4-5 comic pages a day for the past week, and my back is in constant pain, I’ve had a headache for four days now, I have barely been outside my apartment all week. My biggest social interaction aside from interactions with A was going to the art supply store. But it will all be worth it if I can get this book project off the ground and on it’s way to being a Real Book. I am so simultaneously stoked and anxious. 

releasethebatsss said: I’m in Gainesville and can probably hit up the library this weekend (not the UF library, just the public library)

aw, it would have to be the George A Smathers/UF library, unfortunately. Thank you though! 

People have volunteered to help me out in New York and Michigan, thank you my lovely research assistants!!! you are making dreams come true! well, a dream. My dream. My dream of having tons and tons of sources in this book that I’m writing. 

odds that when I sell this book I use the advance to get a Voltairine de Cleyre half-sleeve tattoo are very high tbh

hey followers, if any of you live in ann arbor or new york city or gainesville florida and would be willing to go to a library and scan some documents and e-mail or mail them to me to help with some research I am doing, please let me know! I can barter for your services with art and things if you like. 

I have had a headache for three days.

The Abortion Caravan

Here’s a comic by me about Canada’s first national feminist protest, the abortion caravan of 1970. 

oh my god you guys CM Punk’s contact expired, he didn’t DIE 

I seriously saw a post that was like, “CM Punk, 2014, thank you” and I thought he’d died and I was really upset until I actually googled it.

anyway I’m on Medium now and posting comics, my handle there is voltairine

I’m trying to figure out medium for webcomic purposes but sometimes it lets me upload images and sometimes it doesn’t? like right now, I just uploaded a story, and went to upload another and suddenly when I click the text box the options for uploading an image just… don’t show up. 

This site is not very intuitive or reliable tbh. 

A message from thelma-sleaze
Hey I don't know if you recall me asking for help making font for my porn project, Kinky Queers, a year ago or so. I still need help because I'm fundraising for it! Unfortunately there are only 3 hours left to raise $1,110. Can you contribute by pledging $ or by reblogging? This has been years in the making and I don't want to fail.

hey guys, you can check out this project at thelma-sleaze’s tumblr (I don’t post nsfw/porn stuff on my tumblr as a general rule). If you’re interested in indie self-made porn by LGBT ladies then consider tossing a few bucks their way in the next few hours!

can we all stop acting like bi women in long-term relationships with men are the absolute be-all and end-all of bisexuality

like not that it’s not worth talking about bi women in long-term relationships with men at all, but I’m tired of how they (we, let’s be honest) dominate discourse on bisexuality

bi women who have mostly or only non-het relationships exist and deserve as much if not more room at the table, here. 

anon is mad that I made it explicit that harley & ivy have a thing going on, claims it’s about being true to the canon

i um

i have some bad news for you, anon

lol I got anon hate on Ask Poison Ivy, that is like, a skill

you should all send me interesting questions to answer as Poison Ivy to piss that guy off


A Vancouver charity, RainCity Housing, is converting city benches into pop-up shelters for homeless people. And by giving homeless people in this rainy city some dry coverage and a place to rest, RainCity is putting London’s anti-homeless spikes to shame.

This is great but ummmmm Vancouver definitely has anti-homeless spikes and design EVERYWHERE, just like London does. One non-profit making a few pop-up shelters does not undo the fact that Vancouver as a city has literally criminalized homelessness.
